Hanson Hills Race Report

Sarah getting warmed up for the start.

The team had a strong showing at the race yesterday for sure. For starters, it wasn't just me toeing the line. Matt and Sarah also threw their respective hats in the ring, and they both ended up with very respectable results. Matt finished 5th in the Sport 30-34 class, and Sarah chalked up a 3rd in the Sport 30-39. I rolled in at 6th in the Advanced Singlespeed class just nine seconds off of fifth. The weather was cold and cloudy, but it never rained during the race so we really didn't have too much to complain about. After the race we headed over to Bellaire and the Stoneswater Inn to cap off the full race experience. The cap off included beers at Short's Brewing Co., dinner at LuLu's, and another bottle of wine on the bank of the river that runs next to the Inn. It was awesome. Congratulations to Matt and Sarah for racing and doing so well. Less than two weeks until the Lumberjack 100, so after tomorrows long ride I'll be in taper and recovery mode until the big day June 20th. WNR this week @ the Pleasantview Township Hall. Hope to see you there.

Me getting ready to start my hour and a half of pain.
